Transition  (Bridge  BR 5001)  1973?

 

 

 

 

From the cover you might guess this trio to be a traditional ‘60s folk outfit, but Bill Landers, Dave Smith and Mary Mauldin have a sound that points more toward your classic ‘70s Jesus folk-rock period. And if they sound in particular a lot like the early Myrrh group Dove, that could be because all three members would later go on to form that group. Transition is a nice introduction their welcome blend of jangly upbeat folk-rock, light rock and moody ballads. The acoustic guitar framework and friendly guy/gal harmonies are enhanced with such instruments as organ, piano, soft electric guitar, bass and percussion. ‘Stop And Look Around’, ‘Why Do You Hesitate’, ‘That’s Alotta Love’, ‘The Wrong Thing’, ‘There’s Gotta Be More’, four more. Custom project out of Oklahoma (no relation to the California Bridge label). (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
